Enable TLS 1.2 in IE 8

Greetings,

Is there a way to enable TLS 1.2 in IE 8 on a Windows Server 2003? A website we visit from this machine stopped opening a few days ago and I noticed this may be due to the site updating their SSL certificate.

Its not an option to upgrade this server at the moment and I believe its not possible to upgrade IE 8 on this machine. It is also not an option for us to use other browsers (although these work).

Thank you. Kind regards. SJ

Hello,
You have to go to Internet Options -> Advanced
Scroll down and you'll find a check-box for "Use TLS 1.2"
Check this box

Hope this solves your problem

Thank you for your response. No option for that - it only shows TLS 1.0 ad the SSL 2.0 and SSL 3.0. This is IE 8 and on the server we are unable to upgrade. Thanks.

Ah - Didnt catch that the first time sorry. TLS 1.2 is NOT supported in Windows 2003 mate.

Thank you again for your help. In the end, a complete re-install of IE 8 did the trick. Your link was next on the list if this failed. Thank you again - your support and quick response is appreciated.
